Roses is a three-piece band from Los Angeles made up of Marc Steinberg (Lead Vocals / Keys / Beats), Victor Herrera (Bass), and Abe Vigoda's Juan Velasquez (guitar). Their music is a kind of dance rapturous mix of romantic new wave, indie pop and post punk sounds evoking a sense of nostalgia and high school crushes. I caught up with them after they played a great set at the Smell in Los Angeles and they told me about some of their influences, their prom universe and their new song "Ghost Dad."
